Godinton House is an ancient estate surrounded by magnificent parkland with a beautifully restored house and gardens. Dating back to the 14th century, the house today reflects the tastes of the last owner, Alan Wyndham Green: it is designed to feel comfortable and more informal than other properties – a house, rather than a museum, so that visitors can imagine what life might have been like here. Tours of the house are led by expert guides unraveling the 600 years of history and revealing an excellent country house collection of furniture, art, porcelain, and curios.

 

It's easy to reach Godinton House in Ashford Kent, by train. Simply hop on a train to Ashford International station - then it's a 15-minute walk from the station or just a taxi ride away.
